Karoo uranium mining: is dead
Tuesday, 8th May 2018
Dear friends of the Karoo, this is – hopefully – the latest, last and final update on Karoo uranium mining: it is dead. The Australians and their Russian backers have withdrawn from the Karoo, badly bruised. This is a hard-won victory for the residents of the Karoo. But we must remain vigilant, if other adventurists would step in. And we must make sure that all contamination from past mining and exploration attempts are cleaned up responsibly.But it is also the time for the Karoo to do what it is best at: sustainable agriculture and renewable energies.Read more in the attachment and at THE ECOLOGIST: Victory for campaign against uranium mining project in South Africa's Karoo region.Regards Stefan Cramer
